Halo Reach Daily Challenges 31/12/2011

Shootin' and Lootin' - Kill 400 enemies in any game mode in Reach - 4000cR

Any game mode. Got a bit of MP and a bit of Campaign today but you only need to get 51 kills minimal. Maybe throw in some Firefight to get a nice boost, custom or Matchmade.

I'm Rubber, You're Glue - Earn 1 sticky grenade Kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1000cR

Games with Elites works best due to the spawning with Plasmas. Invasion has the long game time needed, but Elite slayer works just as well.

There Are Many Like... - Kill 50 enemies with precision weapons in the Campaign today - 1000cR

DMR, Sniper, Needle Rifle & Focus Rifle. Might I suggest ONI and Nightfall. Both have the Sniper (Nightfall with a load of ammo, ONI a little further on up on a walkway) and ONI gives you plenty of DMR ammo.

Just a Shower - Complete any Campaign mission on Normal or harder with Thunderstorm on - 4000cR

Nightfall, run it.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 30/12/2011

Fire When Ready - Kill 30 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1100cR

A fair bit of Multiplayer to get through today. So with half the challenges involving some close combat, might I suggest some Grifball or Maybe some Living dead.

Close Talking - Earn 20 kills with close quarters combat in multiplayer Matchmaking - 3000cR

Over the course of 4 games, 5 per game minimal with 7 in one. Grifball is what I'm saying. Swing that hammer, slice with that sword and punch a few faces in.

T-Hug It Out - Kill 7 enemies with close quarters combat in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1400cR

Hold onto that Grifball bomb, you run the game and by running the game, make it last long enough to get your 7 kills. Simple and easy. You can get 10x as many in a game if you push it.

Credits for Completion - Complete 4 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2400cR

Play, stay, win, lose. Whatever, just make it to the end and don't quit.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 29/12/2011

Light Fare - Kill 100 enemies in any game mode in Reach - 3000cR

Any game mode. Well it's Thursday so you can more or less assume it'll be best done in Firefight.

Demon - Kill 30 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking - 2400cR

Heretics in Arcadefight are a good source of Elites, as are the final waves of Scoreattack x2 games.

Survivor - Earn 7 Sprees in a Firefight Matchmaking game - 2000cR

Killing Sprees at 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 100. Special Sprees at 5, 10 & 15. So weapons like a Shotgun or Sniper will boost you. Swords, Splatters, Hammers, Sticks & Wheelman are the other likely ones.

Flat Tire - Kill 10 enemy vehicles in Firefight Matchmaking - 2343cR

Regular old boring Firefight gives a bunch, but that is a bit harder than you're regular explosive Arcadefight which gives 1 a round I believe. Either way, doubles up and see what carnage you can cause.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 28/12/2011

Fire When Ready - Kill 50 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 3000cR

Some good games are Grifball and Multi Team for this challenge, the chaos always makes for easy killings. In fact, you can do this in one game of GB.

Above the Law - Complete a Round in Firefight Matchmaking without dying - 2000cR

Gruntpocolypse on a large map works out well. The biggest weapons they have are Fuel Rod Cannons, and provided you keep your range from them, they won't attack you.

Eyes in the Sky - Kill 10 enemies with the Designator in ONI on Heroic - 1500cR

Rally Point Alpha. Use on Wraith & Elite with Grunts. That's about 5-6 Kills. Revert to last saved, go again.

The Magic Number - Complete 7 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 3000cR

Play the games. No more, no less. Pick something short & sweet. Living Dead EG.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 27/12/2011

One Spartan Army - Kill 150 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking - 2250cR

A couple of games of whatever you want, however with the Elites you need to kill, might I make a suggestion?

Demon - Kill 50 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking - 3000cR

For Elites, Firefight games of Arcadefight doubles works really well. The Heretic rounds give you a good 15-20 Elites, and in doubles you might just be able to get as many as you need. However, the Heretic rounds are ata 50/50 chance of coming, so you might be out of luck for that. One Arcadefight (in doubles) and one Scoreattack x2 should set you on the the right path.

Huck It, Luck It - Complete a Campaign mission on Heroic with Cloud, Tough Luck, and Catch on - 2000cR

No motion tracker, enemies throw grenades more frequently and the enemy dodges the projectiles you send at them more frequently. Nightfall for all the obvious reasons, such as the level being doable n 5 minutes without firing more than a few bullets.

Up Close and Personal - Kill 5 enemies with close quarters combat in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 2343cR

Shotguns, Hammers, Swords and your own fist. Only 5 so that's easily doable in one game. Grifball (Hammers, Swords, Fist) & Living Dead (Shotgun, Swords) for ease.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 26/12/2011

Covenant-cide - Kill 120 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking - 3200cR

Scoreattack x2 will help you here. Just enough enemies to get this in one run-through. Avoid Installation 04, AI while helpful, are kill stealers.

Be Their Huckleberry - Kill 50 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with the pistol - 1000cR

I'd say Gruntpocolypse if you're looking to do a couple of games today, but you can get all the FF challenges in one game. Do you SAx2 and pick a loadout with a pistol (I'd suggest shotgun) then, lay waste, after getting a spree or 2.

Points, Points - Score 20,000 points in a Firefight Matchmaking game - 1750cR

Every Medal you get gives you a little boost. If get a headshot rather than a kill, extra couple of points. Same for beatdowns, assassinations and Sticky kills. But, what you want to do, is build up your sprees. Killing, Shotgun & Sticky will be the most likely sprees. These add a multiplier to every kill you get, boosting your overall points.

Killing Spree - Earn a Killing Spree in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2000cR

Living Dead for easy kills, just take them out with the pistol when they're far away, and blow a hole in their chest when they're up close. Of, in regular games, stay away from the action in an objective game, but within range of your gun and within sight of the objective.

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 26/12/2011 Co-op Dash

Co-op Dash

Clear any Campaign mission on Heroic, in co-op, in 15 minutes or less


Easy enough. Don't even need a second person, just a second controller. Nightfall is the runable level, doable in about 5 minutes. The final part (Past the gate) might have enemies. I think it depends on the amount of people. 3 can be fine, but 2 will more often than not. leave some enemies to kill.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 25/12/2011

Happy Holidays. Enjoy whatever it is you're celebrating.

One Spartan Army - Kill 100 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking - 2000cR

A single game of scoreattack for you, although SA doesn't give you many vehicles, So think about that and the other FF challenge.

Flat Tire - Kill 10 enemy vehicles in Firefight Matchmaking - 2343cR

This one. Arcadefight gives you 1 Vehicle per Round I believe (Provided the map is big enough, beachhead has always been a good one) Some doubles will go down well.

Cannon Fodder - Kill 50 infantry-class foes in the Campaign today - 1000cR

Grunts, Grunts Everywhere. So Winter Contingency is what you want to play. Loads of Infantry there, Grunts & Jackals.

Iron Will - Complete a Campaign mission alone on Heroic or harder with the Iron Skull on - 2500cR

Run Nightfall. Always the easy way.
